35 Years

Yesterday marked the 35th anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision in Roe vs. Wade that found a right to privacy in the Constitution. Knowing this date was quickly arriving I read President Ronald Reagan's essay Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation. It was written in 1985 and is still relevant today. With even more scientific evidence which support life beginning in the womb, abortion is still a legal option for people to be 'rid' of a child.

This is a moving essay and I recommend that all read it. It is a thought-provoking essay that is easily read. At least have some respect for a sitting president who wrote this without regard to public opinion.
